Isn’t it incredible how so many people think they have set a good goal, think they are trying their best to achieve it, work all the hours sent, yet never achieve what they set out to do. Whether it’s on a daily, weekly, monthly or even annual basis.
In judging your success for the first quarter of the year, the fact is that it’s the ASMs which will make the difference…
Remember… the Awesome Special Missions…
So how are you doing with yours?
If you are on track, Great. Well done. I hope you are rewarding yourself enough!
If you are behind… what do you need to do to get back on track?
It’s a way of asking yourself “How truly serious am I about achieving x?”
A is for Attitude.
This is your whole thinking, your beliefs, your perceptions, your conscious and subconscious reactions and your whole approach to your to your goal -as displayed in the words you use, the way you behave, the way you think, and your physiology.
It’s amazing how, simply by changing your attitude, you can often create a whole new result!
C is for Commitment.
This is about making a deliberate Choice. It’s about decisions.
Before setting off on a new path to achieving new goals and new levels of success, it is critical to identify the investment you are prepared to make.
Whilst “involvement” can be accidental, Commitment is always deliberate.
Commitment is black and white. It’s absolute. It’s about being able to say without wavering “Yes, I’m very serious about achieving x”.
E is for Energy.
This is Action, focus, physical application, the stark reality of doing it… making it happen day-to-day, every day, step-by-step until you have reached it or achieved it… and then setting new horizons. It’s about keeping going, whatever it takes, with vigour, vitality, versatility (even when one route is closed, being able to find another without losing sight of the long term goal).
The Energy you put in is the outward manifestation of your true Attitude and your true Commitment.
If you find yourself here a quarter of the way through the year, as captain of a team which is the business equivalent of 2 nil down at half time, it’s time to make some changes… and play your ACE.
